Number of external links in content

You are here:

With the PublishPress Checklists plugin, you can require a maximum and minimum number of external links in your WordPress content. If the content does not have the correct number of external links, you can choose to show a warning, or prevent the post from being published.

We define “external links” as any a href link to URL on another website.

Many sites want to prevent a large number of external links because it can harm their site's search engine optimization.
